The cyclist, an adult male who lives in New Westminster, was transported by BC Ambulance to a local area hospital where his injuries were determined to be minor.
While on route to the collision, a New Westminster Police officer was travelling west bound on 10th Avenue when they collided with another vehicle at Canada Way. The officer and the driver of the other vehicle were transported to a local area hospital by BC Ambulance, and later released by doctors.
